Painting with Lian Zhen
NEW! Live Online Workshops
Lian's online workshops are fun, easy to follow and inspirational!
Bring your painting to a new level when you attend.
Wonderful for both beginners and experienced painters.
When the pandemic hit, Lian Zhen added online workshops to his instructional opportunities and invited me to be his online workshop partner. I have been studying with him for over 10 years. From the moment I first attended one of his workshops in 2010, I recognized that he was both an extraordinary artist and an exceptional teacher. His spiritual beliefs are at the core of his art and life and at mine.
Lian's work is both detailed and loose, often using both styles in a single painting. That style reflects how I operate in the world - a crazy mix of detail orientation and a carefree, loose spirit. Over the years, I have hosted Lian's live workshops and served as his teaching assistant. I continue to study and practice his techniques while finding my own artistic voice.
